Free and situational writing for GCE 'N' and 'O' levels
Leong Ping Alvin

Free and Situational Writing is designed to equip students preparing for the GCE 'N' and 'O' level examinations with the skills to plan, structure, and write essays in a focused and context-appropriate way. Based on text types and the concepts of field, tenor and mode from systemic functional linguistics, the book uses an easy-to-apply format to help students approach any writing task with confidence. The units in the first part of the book explain in detail the fundamentals of writing and the concepts of field, tenor and mode. The units in the second part of the book are focused on text types. Each unit contains a description of the purpose and important features of a particular text type, and worked examples of free and situational writing related to that text type.
